I think the gift is perfectly goddamn sufficient. But my mom would tell me to write a note. So I usually end up deciding to write the note, but mostly because it's a really good way of making people remember and like you (particularly later middle aged or older folks) if you would enjoy receiving favors from them in the future.

Well you're probably right, but more accurately giving to charity really achieves something different from giving to bums. Whether it's better is a moral or ethical question.
Places like Dean and Deluca and Balduccis, as well as a surprising number of those sort of neighborhood coffee stores will have Mariage Freres teas, which are quite good. Dean and Deluca et all don't have much of a selection of more esoteric teas, though. However I really think Mariage Freres doesn't compromise any quality despite its availability, and they have a pretty broad range of styles to choose from and explore. Just make sure that you don't accidentally get the...

Yeah I would think there's only a strong onus on you to ask the father's permission if a dowry's involved. Of course I suppose that's what paying for the wedding is nowadays.
I'll give 'em cigs if they ask, but I have kind of a pay it forward attitude about bumming cigarettes. Otherwise my default is to not give anything unless there's some outstanding reason to (good story, particularly wretched looking fellow, etc.) Seeing the panhandlers of Mexico City really pretty much fucks your sympathy for those in the U.S. and Western Europe.
